Birthday gift

The totally awesome Charlaine sent me an unexpected birthday gift!

Everything was packaged so pretty and with such a cute, heartfelt letter!

Two awesome Hercules combs. My favourite comb brand!
The fork is cocobolo wood from Oregon Cedar Products. And such an awesome sturdy, smooth and pretty fork!
The picture doesn't do it justice for the rich dark brown with red undertones.

I'm super picky about my combs because my thick hair tends to twist the combs out of shape and the tension in the updo will hurt my scalp,but it holds really well and without causing problems.
Amazing pick, Charlaine!

Did I remember to trim last month at all?
I really need to write these things down.... Hmm.
Hubby took off 3-4 cm according to the plan and I put the trimmings out in the kitchen window for the birds. They're probably nesting already judging from how huffed up on hormones and spring they are at the moment! 
I feel rejected though: Usually they love Hubby's blonde hair, but they had no interest in mine. Little jerks!

Today's hair

Yesterday's two twists into to five-stranded braids, turned into two Nautili buns held with my owl-Flexies.
Really pleased with the result. Not the last time I do this!

Today's hair

I had the idea of using the twists in a more advanced way and crossing them over before braiding my hair.
Based on previous experience, I expected it to be quite a pain to keep the twists separated from each other and the loose hair... And it was! 
But, it looked really nice as soon as I finished the twists!
So nice that I went to get a picture of it before I even finished the braids.

I felt really encouraged by the great start, so I "fancied" my planned regular braids up a bit and made two five-stranded ones.
Again: Really pleased with the result!
